Wiki

Clayton Edward Kershaw (born March 19, 1988 in Dallas, Texas) is a left-handed pitcher for the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Kershaw attended Highland Park High School, where he established himself as an elite high school prospect in 2006 when he posted a 13-0 record with an ERA of 0.77, and recorded 139 strikeouts in 64 innings. In a playoff game against Justin Northwest High School, Kershaw pitched an all-strikeout perfect game. He was selected by USA Today as "High School Baseball Player of the Year" and was also the Gatorade National Player of the Year for baseball. Kershaw was also best friends with Detroit Lions Quarterback Matthew Stafford

Entering the 2006 MLB Draft, Kershaw was considered the top high-schooler available. The Los Angeles Dodgers selected Kershaw with the 7th overall pick in the draft. He turned down a scholarship at Texas A&M to sign with the Dodgers, with a bonus estimated at $2.3 million.
